Course Duration: 16/24 hours

[accordion autoclose=false openfirst=true clicktoclose=true]

[accordion-item title=”Overview +” state=open] The course material is designed to provide a working knowledge of the plastics industry through intelligent discussions and lectures. The bulk of the time in this workshop will be spent on the part design requirements imposed on the designer by the injection molding process. The instructor and course material provides a simplified and practical approach to designing with plastic materials. Participants will recognize fundamental considerations necessary for designing products with plastics with respect to the various processes and available plastics.


The one-week course is a more comprehensive look at one or more specific manufacturing process or may offer a more extensive study and usage of Solidworks and/or Creo.  Also check out our One Week Manufacturing Class a one-week course that covers die casting and forging in addition to plastic part design.
